“A unique and breathtaking novel that simply has no equal, a true classic in every sense.” —SFBook Reviews
“[Rogue Moon comes] very close to our ideal of the perfect science fiction novel.” —TheMagazine of Fantasy & Science Fiction
“Often regarded with Bester’s The Demolished Man, Bradbury’s Fahrenheit 451 and Walter M. Miller’s A Canticle for Leibowitz as a seminal book at a time of change and growing maturity in SF, Rogue Moon is a thought-provoking, even if unpleasant novel, that deserves the over-used term of ‘classic’. A recommended read.” —SFFWorld.com
“An SF classic.” —The Encyclopedia of Science Fiction
